Bringing change, insight and experience to reducing employer’s healthcare spend.
Frank is a veteran of the employee benefits industry having served exclusively with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama for over 30 years. After his career with Blue Cross, Frank, founded High Value Strategic Advisors in 2019 as an independent health benefits consultancy specializing in advising mid to large self-funded employers by helping them “see” the “hidden value” inside their existing health benefit plans.
Drawing on his decades of experience working with dozens of large national accounts, Frank is able to help employers understand that they can control the cost by creating strategic benefit plans that reward employees for making good choices. Experienced in working with health plan budgets that range between $10 million to $500 million annually, Frank understands that success rests on being able to see both the “big picture’’ and “the details” which is critical to helping the client meet their goals.
As an advocate for change in healthcare delivery and quality, Frank is an active member of:
He’s served companies including Walmart, The University of Alabama, Saks Fifth Avenue, Target, regional hospital systems, heavy and light industrial manufacturers, regional banks, as well as numerous start-ups over the years. Recently, he’s helped a number of healthcare solution providers with their B2B strategy and how they can best demonstrate value in their target markets.
Frank was introduced to the Mitigate Partners in 2018 after a chance meeting with Carl Schuessler at the EBN Benefits Expo in New Orleans. As Frank recalls, “I remember introducing myself to Carl and wanting to learn more about his journey. He seemed like the person that I could relate to as he’s very interested in helping other people be successful. I could tell that Carl was someone who was well on his way to challenging the conventional thinking regarding how healthcare should work. That’s the reason I wanted to learn more and be a part of the Mitigate Partners community.”
Frank holds a BA in Communication from the University of Alabama. He is designated as a Certified Health Consultant – Purdue University/Blue Cross Association. He is presently seeking the Certified Health Value Professional (CHVP) designation from the Validation Institute.
